In the following recipe, I have cooked asparagus spears and potatoes together and flavored it with little garlic powder and roasted cumin powder.

I have used water as a base to cook the Asparagus and Potatoes, but you can use vegetable/ chicken or beef stock as well.

I have used a Stove Top method to cook the vegetables since I wanted to be sure that asparagus gets fork tender, cause that is the consistency you are looking for.

This will result in a smooth creamy puree. If the Asparagus is a little bit undercooked, they will create strings, which won’t give out the smooth texture.

Alternatively, these vegetables can be steamed or pressure cooked as well. Just follow the cooking instructions.

If you steam the vegetables, add little water or stock while pureeing the vegetables to achieve the required consistency.

My Little Notes:

Asparagus can be introduced to babies between 8 to 10 months of age.

This vegetable tends to cause gas and is a bit hard for little tummies. Watch out for bloating or gassiness.

If your baby has any digestive issues, then it is best to introduce Asparagus later than earlier.

Asparagus is an excellent source of iron, fiber, vitamins, calcium, and minerals. They also have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.

While choosing Asparagus:

Asparagus stalks should be rounded. They shouldn’t be fat or twisted.

Pick ones with firm, thin stems with closed tips (the tips of the green and purple varieties should be deeply colored).

Use asparagus within a day or two after purchasing for best flavor and texture.

    My kids are all grown up and adults now 🙂 but when they were young I always fed them homemade veg and fruit puree while they were babies. Asparagus puree sounds healthy, quick and tasty.
